Question about NetGear WGR614 Wireless Router

1 Answer

I went thru the process of changing name of my SSID. In the process, I provided a passphrase. In doing so, I was provided with keys. I wrote down the key and was able to log in. But I needed to provide the Ascii code 10 ascii digits. I thought I'd be able to only enter the passphrase, which was seven characters. Is there anyway to not have to enter the ascii code? (looks like it is in hex - so it is awkward to enter?)

You will need to reset the router to default and reenter the information that you need to
reflect your password or settings needed to log on.
you will need to follow the instructions set for this located on the manufacturers site or
on the cd provided for you when you purchased the router.
here is the user manual in PDF form

Where do I fine SSID Name & Encryption Key


If you are trying to set up a router and need to establish the SSID name and WPA encryption key, you will need to sign into the router using the routers IP address. Input the userid and password, then go to the wireless network setup page. Here is where you enable wireless operation, establish the SSID, and generate the encryption key or passphrase.

If you are trying to connect to someone else's wireless network, you need to know their SSID so that when you do a search for available networks you can determine which is theirs. Once that is established, if they give you the encryption key or passphrase, you can attempt to connect to their network. With the encryption key or passphrase, you will not be able to connect.

Acer how to setup


Hello. This may help. Your Wireless Network name and SSID are one in the same. Lot's of people will customize there wireless network name (SSID) like "smithfamily". However, if it wasn.t customized the default SSID should be used. This can be found on the sticker on your modem. Now then, as you know, when you try to connect to your network you are prompted to provide a network Key or PASSPHRASE. The same applies here as above, if it was customized then the Key or PASSPHRASE will be different then the default Key or Passphrase found on your router.--So when it say's you have a "badphrase", your Key or PASSPHRASE is incorrect.. Good Luck

I am trying to connect to netflix thru my wii and t says that the ssid code is wrong and i don't know what to do.


If by SSID code they mean the name of your home network double check that you are indeed typing it in correctly, as it will be case sensitive (make sure caps lock is not on). If they mean your SSID password (encryption key) then double check by logging onto your router that you are typing the correct passphrase. If you have another computer you can usually log in to the router's setup/management by going to either 192.168.1.1 or 192.16.0.1. This works on most routers. From there you would want to view the "security" tab or something along those lines and check to see
what your SSID is and/or what the security passphrase / encryption key is.

Now we have gone wireless how do I set up my printer as wireless.? I have a photosmart C7280 all in one


a) Locate and write down your wireless router settings:
Network Name (also called SSID) :_________________________________________
WEP key/WPA Passphrase (if needed) :_____________________________________

IMPORTANT :You must have this information available to continue with your wireless setup. HP provides
a web-based tool called the Wireless Network Assistant [URL: www.hp.com/go/networksetup (English
only)] that can help retrieve this information for some systems. If the Wireless Network Assistant is unable
to retrieve your network information, you must consult the documentation for your wireless router, the router
manufacturer, or the person who originally setup your wireless network.

b) Press the Setup button on the HP All-in-One. (wrench/spanner symbol)
c) Press down arrow button until Network is highlighted, and then press OK . The Network Menu appears.
d) Press down arrow button until Wireless Setup Wizard is highlighted, and then press OK . In a few moments, a list of detected
networks appears on the display. The network with the strongest signal appears first.

e) Do one of the following:
- Press down arrow button to highlight the name of the network that you wrote down earlier.
- If the network name that you wrote down does not appear in the list, you can enter it manually. Press down arrow button until Enter New Network Name (SSID) is highlighted, and then press OK . Then use the visual keyboard to enter the network name.
f) If your network uses security, a prompt appears for the WEP key or WPA passphrase. Both are case sensitive. Use the visual keyboard to enter the WEP key or WPA passphrase, as requested.
Note : If your router provides 4 WEP keys, make sure you use the fi rst one.
g) Follow the prompts on the display to complete the network setup.


Visual keyboard tips:
To Select: use Arrow keys to highlight, and then press OK .
For mistakes: Select Clear .
For lowercase: Select abc
For numbers: Select 123
For symbols: Select .@!
When you are finished: Highlight Done , and then press OK .

Can't connect the artisan 800 to our wireless network


To add the printer to your wireless network, you need to know the name (SSID)
of your wireless network. If it has security enabled, you also need to know the
WEP key or passphrase. Write down the SSID and WEP key or passphrase below:
■ Network name (SSID): _________________________________________
■ WEP key or passphrase: _________________________________________
Note:
If the WEP key is either 5 or 13 characters, it’s ASCII. If the WEP key is either 10 or 26
characters, it’s hexadecimal. The default WEP key is usually 1.
If your passphrase contains upper- or lowercase letters, be sure to note it correctly.
The printer supports the following wireless security modes: WEP 64, WEP 128, and
WPA-PSK.
If you don’t know your wireless network name (SSID) or WEP key or passphrase,
contact the person who set up your wireless network before you begin.


Insert the printer software CD.
2. Windows Vista®: If you see the AutoPlay window, click Run Epsetup.exe.
When you see the User Account Control screen, click Continue.
Windows® XP: When you see the Software installation screen, continue with
step 3.
Mac OS® X: Double-click the icon.
3. Click Install.

1.Make sure that the printer is turned on.
2. When you see the FireWall Warning screen, click Next.
3.Make sure you connected the Ethernet cable

avery you need to configure your router to avoid having people using your internet conection:

please provide the model and maker of your router and I can walk you through a desirable configuration. or if you want to try it yourself check on your router's manual as usually there will be instructions on what you need to do...

for you to have a general idea i suggest your read the following article that explains common things you need to set up like:
1. change the default SSID (the network name or name of your router/access point)
2. hide your ssid (so only you know the name and set up the computers you want manually to use it)
3. a network key/passphrase: so in order for other computer to join your network a key/passphrase or password is provided first
4. encryption: so your neigbors don't decipher what you're transmitting wirelessly.
5. configure your computer to access your wireless network after configure your router with the configuration you set.

if you have any questions post back and make sure to note the router model and maker

Having trouble adding computer to wireless network


this is just easy.. what you should type is the encryption key only... if your security is wep, only the encryption key or key 1 is needed. if your security is wpa, only the passphrase is needed.. it is very CASE SENSITIVE.. but if you see that the name has changed to LINKYS_SES, then you have a problem there because your wireless settings has changed due to the button on your router which is the secure easy set-up on the upper left corner which is the cisco button.
